A Fletcher club volunteer’s primary responsibilities are to promote Fletcher within their respective city or country and to provide a forum whereby both local and visiting members of the Fletcher community may connect. Volunteers achieve this by organizing a wide range of events, whose scope is dictated in part by the number of alumni in the area and the number of volunteers. Larger clubs may hold as many as 15 events each year, while the smallest clubs act as points of contact for individual visiting members of the greater Fletcher community. Nearly all programming is volunteer-driven, and in larger cities, may be organized by up to ten club volunteers working together.
